Important questions to ask before dating someone

How are you supposed to lasso that magical unicorn before it flies away?

They want to know early on if they should invest the time and energy that a quality relationship requires.

Everyone today thinks this is a bad question to ask, because you seem more eager, but that’s not true.

This question is referring to personal character and growth, dreams, and your life calling. For example, if you are a very driven person and the person you are dating is not then that could be an area of conflict down the road.

If someone doesn’t treat others with honor and respect, they most likely will not treat you with honor and respect. However, forgiveness left unattended is a wide open door for bitterness to take root, causing people to disconnect spiritually/relationally from one another.

We’re not saying it never works, we’re just giving you a heads up so you’re not blindsided once the honeymoon is over. Here are some things to ask yourself about your community: 6.

Do your best to begin each date knowing how you're going to spend your time together. Do we have a good understanding of what forgiveness means? Holding grudges because you've been wronged kills a relationship.
